Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Scotland at the head of Loch Etiv, near Glen Coe
Time
This was around midday. It was a family trip as well as a photo holiday so couldn't get out to get the golden hour on this one. Perhaps next time.
Lighting
The lighting was fairly neutral and I wish I'd found this spot at sunrise.
Equipment
It was taken with a Nikon D810 and a Nikon 16-35 F4 lens. I had a Lee landscape polariser in place as well. The Tripod was a Giottos Silk Road carbon (model YTL8254) that I've had for a long time. It's great for travel as it's so light and can get pretty low if needed.
Inspiration
I had researched some places to take photo's in Scotland and an image I had seen previously of Ben Starav looked really interesting with great reflections and the trees in the lower left sector.
Editing
There was a little post processing with photoshop and Color Efex Pro.
In my camera bag
Body Nikon D810 Nikon lenses 16-35 F4, 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8, 105 F2.8 Micro, 50 F1.8. Lee Filters - NDs, ND grads hard and soft, Big Stopper, Landscape polariser
Feedback
Research your proposed location. Use photography planning apps. Get out early, focus on getting that one image and enjoy!
